    When it's closed you will meet hundreds of young people on the plaza dancing to hiphop or skateboarding or just hanging around and drinking beer. Awesome!

    Shame both ground and top floors were closed when I visited, made €10 seem a bit steep. But the building is beautiful and a few pieces were really great. Wifi code included on your ticket.

    You might find some interesting temporary exhibitions. The last floor is hard to digest though! Conceptual stuff is not easy for "normal people". Maybe the curators could have made it lighter?
